Serhou Guirassy of Stuttgart has been connected to Tottenham Hotspur in recent weeks.
Journalist Dean Jones revealed that Spurs are keeping an eye on the Guinea international forward on the Ranks FC podcast in October.
According to a report released by BILD, Tottenham may have a better chance of acquiring Guirassy during the January transfer window.
The German publication reported on what happened following Stuttgart’s 2-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the DFB-Pokal semifinals.
In the 54th minute, Guirassy gave his team the lead, sending them to the competition’s quarterfinals.
The rumored Tottenham target reportedly stole the stadium announcer Holger Laser’s microphone after the game. He then spoke with “very personal words” to the MHP Arena crowd.
“As usual, the atmosphere was fantastic. I want to thank you for everything,” BILD cites him as saying. Those remarks “almost sounded like warm farewell words,” according to them.
Tottenham will be hoping to sign Serhou Guirassy.
BILD revealed a few weeks ago that Guirassy is hoping to join the Premier League. Once more, this is encouraging for Tottenham as they try to sign the player.
According to that report, he has a release clause that allows him to leave Stuttgart for just €17.5 million (£15 million) during the January transfer window, attracting “many interested parties.”
Overall, if Spurs choose to pursue Guirassy, things appear to be going well for them.
The 27-year-old would undoubtedly meet many of Spurs’ needs. He’s not too expensive, a good age, proven at a high level, talented, prolific, and hardworking.
This season, Guirassy has had an absolutely amazing record. In his 13 club appearances across all competitions, he has 18 goals and 2 assists. Additionally, this comprises 16 goals from 11 Bundesliga games.
Any player would typically be the clear leader in the scoring charts with a total like that. But at the moment, that position is occupied by a striker who transferred from the Premier League to the Bundesliga in the summer.
Is Guirassy going to join Spurs from the Bundesliga to take Harry Kane’s spot, who just moved to the Bundesliga a few months ago?
